Members of the Ontario Provincial Police are urging pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, and motorists alike to make safety a priority as we enter the winter season.
Since September, OPP West Region members have responded to four fatal collisions involving two pedestrians, a cyclist, and a motorcyclist, in which drivers reported they couldn't see the victim before the collision. As the season changes and night falls earlier, police are urging all road users to take some simple steps to ensure everyone gets where they're going safely.
Safety advice for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists:
Safety advice for motorists:
Drivers and pedestrians share the responsibility for keeping our roads safe; please do your part.
At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
